bookofjoe archives hack

Best-of-2600

Turns out my archives haven't disappeared as a result of TypePad's recent "upgrade" โ€” they've merely become very difficult to access.

While my crack technical team continues its efforts (now nearly a week in) to remedy the situation, here's a kludge I discovered to let you go right to a given day's posts, all the way back to the very first on August 24, 2004.

In the URL box type:

http://www.bookofjoe.com/200?/??/??/index.html

The question marks are where you put the

Year: 200? (4 through 9)

Month: ?? (01 through 12)

Day: ?? (01 through 31)

So, for example, to see August 24, 2004, you'd type

http://www.bookofjoe.com/2004/08/24/index.html

Doing so takes you right to that day's posts.

You'll note TypePad has also inadvertently removed about 95% of the thousands of pictures I've posted over the past 4+ years, instead leaving cryptic strings of letters which link to the photos.

The tech team's addressing that issue as well.

We're busier than the proverbial one-armed paperhanger.

Stay tuned.

And while I'm thinking about it, saying something isn't lost, it's just not easily accessible has a nice (and somewhat familiar) ring to it, what?
